Antonia “Toya” Carter Speaks On Lil Wayne’s Jail Sentence: “It Is What It Is… We Just Gotta Make The Best Of It”

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Coupled Up, Interviews, News

Antonia Carter recently did an interview with VIBE magazine speaking on how their daughter, Reginae Carter, was really having a difficult time with all the date changes and the day that Lil Wayne was finally sentenced.

“It was up and down, you know. One minute we thought he was going and she’d be sad and then he don’t go. The last day he finally went in, we didn’t go, so my daughter was like, ‘I wish I would’ve went.’ It was just too much.”

Toya says Lil Wayne encouraged her to be strong while he was locked up, adding that he wanted Reginae’s cell phone to remain turned on so she can answer whenever he calls. Reginae will get to visit Wayne in jail, noting, quote, “at this point it is what it is, and we just gotta make the best of it.”

All of Lil Wayne’s other children will be to young to remember any of this, so Reginae this has to be really hard. Do you think it’s a good idea for Reginae to visit her father in jail???

On a side note, Toya is still going strong in her new relationship with Memphitz.

    It is age-appropriate, it also depends on her maturity level at her age. As for her dad it may strike him emotionally where he may need to wakeup!!!

  • tell it like it is...

    I agree with juliemango.

  • It'sWhateva!

    I hope this wakes him up!

    “Do you think it’s a good idea for Reginae visit her father in jail”?

    Ahh… Yeah! Why wouldn’t it? The girl is what? 12, 13 years old? So why wouldn’t it be a good idea?

    It’s not like father is about get killed or something, and has to see him dead. You have to let your kids grow up. Stop babying them, people!

    She knows he’s in jail so its not like you are trying to hide it. Seeing that he’s okay, will make it easier for her

  • tia

    I guess

    I think its just fine for her to go see her father while he’s locked up. As his daughter, I’m sure she is not blind to his activities. Even if they tried to hide it from her, the media makes sure the world knows, so she has sources to find out. Taking her to see him will maintain their relationship. especially since he’s an entertainer. he may not be at home as much as normal fathers, so YES! Toya and her daughter have to make the best of the situation. if that means taking her daughter for a supervised visit to her father in lock up so be it. she is already a product of a broken home. lets not make her lose a year due to lock up. yes wayne is responsible for his actions, but nonetheless he deserves to see his child. She is old enough to have a maturity level to understand the situation and learn from it. If anything, its even better that she sees him locked up, so she learns that just because you are wealthy or an entertainer doesn’t mean you can escape the law. sometimes candycoating things for children does more harm than good. kids need to learn life is not always peachy.

    Memphitz is fine.

    I just love how the modern day sista has turned the whole “STAND BY YOUR THUG” steeze into a true ART FORM. Talk about lowerin’ the bar of expectations? The sad part about their rationale, is their cavalier attitude, all the while exposin’ the children to their own nihilistic wretchedness! This is just another in a long line of reasons why most sistas’ should not be allowed to breed.

    It’s RIKERS ISLAND people! It’s not like he’s at some club Med prision for white collar criminals. Why would any mother in her right mind take her child to that place? She can get phone calls from him and they can write letters. It’s selfish to expose her to that kind of environment.

    @ Sanjor
    She’s the one that has to deal with Reginae’s feelings. It is clear that this little girl adores her father. So yes, she and Reginae will have to make the best of it – that’s the “we” Toya’s talking about not her and Wayne.


    Its Rikers Island though…Its not the Martha Stewart type of jail so I would say no.
